Common Swift

Apus apus


As I was passing by the beautiful town of Praia do Ribatejo, I spotted several swifts flying really low and decided to check them out. I found out they were actually breeding in an old palm tree, alongside a colony of house sparrows. Nearby, red-rumped swallows and tons of white storks were also nesting.
